What is Odyssey of the Mind and what do we do?

Why are you carrying empty cardboard boxes, PVC pipes and a carton of eggs into school?
How did the La Chat students build that?
What is going on in that classroom, is it science or theater?

These are questions that are asked of an Odyssey of the Mind coach on a weekly basis. So, what is Odyssey of the Mind and what do we do?

Three Short Family Hikes

Just like my article on cross-country skiing, I am going to stick with the keep-it-simple formula.  There are nearly limitless places to hike in Switzerland. However, to keep it focused, I have chosen three that are close by, are relatively short, and are beautiful.  And, in the skiing theme, one will be a “blue” beginner’s hike, one will be “red” intermediate hike, and one will be “black.”  You can choose depending on your desired level of adventure.
